I’ve been following 88 Keys for a minute now; since the days he produced tracks for Mos Def’s album “Black On Both Sides” actually.
He’s a very talented producer from Long Island who started in hip-hop after hearing Prince Paul’s production on De La Soul’s 1989 critically acclaimed album 3 Feet High and Rising. In the early ’90′s, 88′ met A Tribe Called Quest’s front man Q-Tip, Pete Rock and producer Large Professor working as an intern at West Hempstead’s The Music Palace recording studio. It was Large Professor who gave Charles his 88-Keys moniker after witnessing his skills on the Ensoniq ASR-10 keyboard.
Now he’s coming out with an album called “Death Of Adam“; a very interesting album featuring high profile guests such as Bilal, J Davey, Kanye West, Redman and many others. Productions are very nice and the executive producer for this project is non other than Kanye West (himself).

And make sure to check your local TV News for more on the “Death Of Adam”…
